Hotels to Dine For
In addition to truly wonderful days and nights, independent resorts and hotels offer some amazing food experiences
Ilove to cook, under certain circumstances. Circumstances that I find hard to duplicate in my California bungalow kitchen. These include but are not limited to: ingredients prepped by a professional chef. Said professional chef on the scene offering instructions and light banter. Six or so friends to cook with, someone else to do the dishes, fast and loose high-end wine-tastings while sautéing the prawns, landscaped gardens outside the window, and a spa within walking distance in case the whole procedure becomes too sweaty and hard.
So I don’t cook that much. But I’m lucky enough to work at Stash, and have the inside track on resorts and hotels set up to provide great food experiences, like an all-organic dinner served in a potting shed, or a traditional salmon potlatch a few feet from Puget Sound. Here are a few favorites.
